APL Compression Slider for an Extra-Tight Weatherseal

The Compression Slider is part of the high-performing Metro Series, with doors 2.4m high possible in Extra High Wind Zones. The new slider comes with a closing, turn-to-tighten handle that activates snug panel compression against a full perimeter gasket, with secure locking points at the jambs. See the video below for a demonstration of the tight closing action.

The product is expected to find strong demand in the apartment sector where higher wind pressures and driven rain can be encountered, but it is appropriate in any context, and can be used in sliding window applications as well.

The compression action, where the sliding panel is pulled tight against seals and locked, is facilitated by sophisticated Roto hardware from Germany. An Urbo-style lever handle is used as a grip to move the door open and closed and turns 180° in the locking motion.

Because of the tight seal, the Compression Slider has superior acoustic performance. It achieves an STC sound reduction of 35dB while the standard Metro slider and stacker achieves a 29dB reduction (glass dependent).

The new offering is available in single slider and bi-parting single slider formats (no stacking panels).
